“The measures of ensuring cyber security and information security are taken at a level matching the current moment, and also the threats voiced against us at the official level by the representatives of other countries,” Peskov said.

 

Earlier in the day, NBC News reported citing a senior intelligence official and top-secret documents that US military hackers “have penetrated Russia’s electric grid, telecommunications networks and the Kremlin’s command systems, making them vulnerable to attack by secret American cyber weapons”.
